texturing over layers of wallpaper
I have a house from 1931 with plaster walls. In some areas there is at least 3 layers of wallpaper in other areas the previous owner painted over the wallpaper & I don't know how many layer are under the paint. We have tried scoring the wallpaper & soaking it with many different solutions. Were having a really tuff time getting the wallpaper off & we are damaging the walls in the process. My question is if we can just primer the walls & then use joint compound to texture over the primer & then paint over that. I'm going for a venetian plaster look on the walls.
